HEYOOOO it’s Dubsmash time! Which is my absolute favorite time. Get excited, y’all. After the crowds went wild for our Dubsmash Roundup of Rome, we knew we had to continue these posts. (Plus, any excuse to make more Dubsmashes, duh.)

Okay, now that we’re all in the right place… here’s our Dubsmash Roundup of Brussels!
Since I took exactly one summer of French classes in like 7th grade, I figured I was pretty good to go with the language and I wouldn’t have any trouble talking to the locals. (I was wrong.)
But, I got a cone of Belgian frites, and soon all of my worries vanished.
Plus, we literally went to a city with a famous statue of a little boy peeing. That’s right. Brussels is home to Mannekin Pis, a small bronze (urinating) sculpture that attracts sight-seers from all over the world. Clearly, we had to see it for ourselves.
Yep. There he is. Doing his thing. Which naturally reminded me of Tubthumping by Chumbawamba and the weirdness of 90s music.
But let’s get back to the food. Belgium is known for it’s chocolate, so we went in search of some bonbons and truffles, because…
We went into the store, made our purchase, and were super excited to have a little bag of chocolates!
Then there was a sudden turn of events, where I became an Incredible Hulk of chocolate, and got super-human chocolate-eating powers. Nothing could stop me!
But Michael knew that there was other incredible food in this city. He had visited Brussels in 4th grade, and still has dreams of Belgian waffles.
We ate some. They were amazing. Which prompted this question…
Because everyone would be happier if they had a waffle!
Don’t worry. We ate some real food too. Brussels is also known for its mussels.
And I was like, daaang Michael. Have you been working out?? Because…
But, come on now. We didn’t just eat during our stay. We also drank! Because Belgian beer is a thing. And luckily…
We did some learnin’ while we drank and toured the Cantillon Brewery, where they make super traditional lambic-style beer.
To sum it up: this is a pretty serious consideration…
And I would be proud to sing this, loudly and in public.
Thus concludes our Dubsmash Roundup of Brussels! We had way too much fun making these & embarrassing ourselves in public. Pretty much obsessed with this app. If you missed out the first time, be sure to check out our Dubsmash Roundup of Rome. And, of course, be on the lookout for more Dubsmash posts to come!
Did you love this post?? Pin it! (I’m trying to get people other than immediate family and friends to read this blog, and that would help.)

Oh how I love both of you. I think this actually takes the cake over the Rome version. My only complaint is I want more! I love the dancing ones and my happiness grows when you have locals in the background with no idea what’s going on. The lady in the red coat: amazing.
